  • Hi Stefano,

    The best place to start is the, specifically

    The MS team have provided a stack of material including video's, links to official walkthroughs & guides and official training guides.

    Another great place to check out are these forums and the Microsoft & Community blogs, containing a wealth of information across all areas of Project and Project Server 2010.

    Hope this helps,

  • Hello Alexander, 

    thanks for the advice, I am checking that link right now and it's very useful.

    As I would like to put my hands on Project Server and try to learn by doing I wonder if there is any "test server" I can connect to from my home and use Project Server as if I was at the office. That would be great,

    Thanks again for your time

  • The same site should give you the link to the Office 365 preview for Project Server 2013.  For Project Server 2010, you might want to check out Project Hosts or BeMoPro - they used to offer a free trial environment.

  • One more thing I would like to ask is: with Project server now I can use MS Project as usual connected to the server and I can use the WPA to do the same things, right? 

    As far as I can see the WPA is a tool for those people working on a project as resources and Project is for the Project managers, is that so?

  • Stefano --
    Project managers will use BOTH Microsoft Project 2010 and Project Web App.  Administrators will use both of these two tools as well.  Executives and team members will only use Project Web App.
    Also, if you are serious about learning how to set up and use Project Server 2010 effectively, you might want to consider purchasing our Project Server 2010 books for administrators and for PMs, available for purchase at:
    Hope this helps.
